    About six months ago, sold my Flex6700 and went solely "SWL".... for ~$250, having just as much fun as I did with $8k worth of radio.

    Amazing to me how I spent much of my amateur radio hobby wishing for the best of gear, and by the time I get there, how little it all really matters. Money better spent on other things in life!

    Here is my shack for the moment it changes when I buy equipment or put old radios back in service, and one of my shelves with currently repaired radios ready for operation. I have a tight operating spot until I build a new shack strictly for my stuff. Go to Flicker photo sharing site and put my call into the search, some of my other past shacks will come up.

    nice pics and impressive equipment.

    I have tried to redo an idea I got in an old (I think) qst magazine where some hams were putting their equipment in coffee tables or nice wooden curio cabinets or dare I say, anywhere a new rig could be hidden from the xyls view or perhaps just to sneak a 60' or 70's hf transceiver upstairs so not to be a celler dweller. ha ha
    The tv stand isnt finished yet, I need to make a rollup door for the front. This is in our sun room. Ham gear was always banished to the celler in the past so this is what I did to keep things down as low a profile as possible without resorting to something from Hogans Heroes ha ha
    The IC9100 is many radios in 1 so the shack works for me. I also use a sdr dongle through the dell box. I can have the sdr going while using the 9100, both using software on the dell box and displaying on the tv. Its very comfortable but I have fell asleep listening to cw.

    Most comfortable chair ever made. Getting out of it is hell though.

    I like the Marantz stereo- what a classic! Good stuff.

    I second that. I inherited a 2252 a few months ago and it sounds better than my modern 5.1 setup. Looks like the one pictured except mine has a wooden case. I don't use the modern setup for music anymore.

    Notice how it's customary for Canadians to never wear their shoes inside the house. :D

    Don't need shoes if you don't go outside ;)
